Crystal Hartman Shout out for volunteer coordinator(s) for this Sunday (Jan 31, 12-4) and future Sundays.

I am usually unable to host the Sunday volunteer days and EPP is in need of a few volunteer coordinators who can
See More run the show. We want to keep the Sunday thing going, so please contact me if you are available regularly once or twice a month. Norm has graciously agreed to do the second Sunday of each month.

We are grateful for any time you can give.See Less

Crystal Hartman Oh, Lyndall has also offered to do a Sunday or two a month, and she just did one a couple weeks ago. Thanks Lyndall!28.01.2015 at 03:54 amGabriela Waschewsky This Sunday is Feb 1. I'm already committed to teach that day, but AE (after EarthSkills) I can take the first Sunday of each month.28.01.2015 at 10:29 am1view 5 more commentsBrian MonkeySoul Stanton The only reason why we did Sundays is because Michael Adlers religion.... many people have expressed preferences for Saturdays, especially because family and their religious purposes and students getting ready for school. I cant be around for at least another month.28.01.2015 at 01:58 pmCrystal Hartman Thank you Gabriela! I have you down for the first one of the month starting in march. Brian, I will consider switching it to Saturday. Let me confer with those concerned first. Thank you for the suggestion. I however, am usually in Perry each weekend.28.01.2015 at 02:01 pm1Brian MonkeySoul Stanton It would be cool to partner with OSAC, as they have work parties on Fridays at the student gardens. It would be nice to have satellite workshops to expand outreach and accessibility in town to available folks. Also the bus doesnt run Sundays, which has been a constant expressed barrier. Thanks Norm, Crystall, Lyndall, and Gabriela Waschewsky!28.01.2015 at 02:07 pm1Crystal Hartman Brian, OSAC is coming to EPP Sunday Feb 8 for our Project Propagation! Woot woot!28.01.2015 at 02:09 pm2Brian MonkeySoul Stanton Ya, we have kept a good relationship w them, especially the past officers. Kristin Balko is very knowledgeable and involved. If you have any innovative partnership ideas. Wilmot gardens has a propagation greenhouse. If we could forge an alliance it would be awesome to have a bldg core of volunteers and leaders. Michael Adler had presented to the Master Gardeners and I Wendy Wilbur and I have talked about getting them involved, as they are at Wilmot and other locales.28.01.2015 at 02:14 pm

Caribbean Oregano

Caribbean Oregano (Plectranthus amboinicus) may be grown in your vegetable or herb garden or as a potted specimen. The leaves of this succulent herb are fleshy and strongly aromatic. Leaves are often used Caribbean cooking and also as a substitute for sage. The leaves are used medicinally in India as a cure for coughs.

Soil and Water: No special soil requirements are known. Average water needs – do not over water.
Sun: Part sun to shade.
Cold: Will be killed by frost.
Pruning: Pruning will promote branching and can rejuvenate an old lanky plant.
Propagation: Roots easily from cuttings placed in soil.
Pests: None are known.

Harvesting, storage, and preparation: Young leaves have a milder flavor. Using too many leaves could overwhelm the flavor of a dish; when used in moderation the taste pleasant and similar to sage. The flavor is very amenable to beans. The leaves can be used fresh and chopped finely or dried for storage and crumbled. Drying the leaves can take quite a while, especially if they are left attached to the stem.
